Jared Medeiros's curator insight, February 11, 2015 10:00 PM

This pirate excursion map is so cool and gives a great look at the travels of different pirates.  As we get farther away from these time periods, it seems like the idea of these Caribbean pirates are fictional.  To hear true historical events about these individual pirates is very interesting.  I would  love to take a time machine back to Port Royal during these times to experience that madness.

Brian Wilk's curator insight, March 28, 2015 9:34 AM

Imagine the horror a native of the Caribbean must have felt when white men came into their scenic lands and pillaged their villages and plundered their treasuries? Blackbeard otherwise known as Edward Teach, would light slow burning cannon fuses and place them in his beard to create an aura about him as he fought and raided these port of call. Calico Jack Rackham, a great pirate name if there ever was one, was best known for having  a pair of female pirates aboard. Instantly becomes one of my heroes! Then you have William Parker who was actually an opportunist backed by England who plundered Spanish treasures throughout Central America. Here is my favorite pirate joke; what is a pirate's favorite letter? "R" you say? No, it's the letter "C", pirates love the sea....

Discussing Race Helps Black, Latino Boys, Study Says | Latina Lista

Discussing Race Helps Black, Latino Boys, Study Says | Latina Lista | digital divide information | Scoop.it

By Natalie Gross
Latino Ed Beat


“I don’t see color” isn’t always a good approach to addressing race — at least according to a report released this week by the Center for Collaborative Education and the Annenberg Institute that evaluates the reasons for low academic performance among black and Latino males in Boston Public Schools.


While in some cases, black and Latino males are benefiting from positive cultures, differentiated instruction, active family engagement and professional learning environments in schools, overall, the district could improve by forgoing a color-blind approach and encouraging explicit discussions of race, gender and ethnicity, according to the report.

 

“Scholars suggest that being explicit about the impact of racism in schools and society and developing an antiracist school culture in which people of color feel a sense of belonging and empowerment will lead to better outcomes for students of color,” the report states. While some teachers did this well, others were “reluctant to describe how race/ethnicity played into their practice and experiences with students.”

Forget Sykes-Picot. It’s the Treaty of Sèvres That Explains the Modern Middle East. | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Ninety-five years ago today, European diplomats gathered at a porcelain factory in the Paris suburb of Sèvres and signed a treaty to remake the Middle East from the ashes of the Ottoman empire. The plan collapsed so quickly we barely remember it anymore, but the short-lived Treaty of Sèvres, no less than the endlessly discussed Sykes-Picot agreement, had consequences that can still be seen today. We might do well to consider a few of them as the anniversary of this forgotten treaty quietly passes by.

The Problem We All Live With | This American Life | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Right now, all sorts of people are trying to rethink and reinvent education, to get poor minority kids performing as well as white kids. But there's one thing nobody tries anymore, despite lots of evidence that it works: desegregation. Nikole Hannah-Jones looks at a district that, not long ago, accidentally launched a desegregation program.

I have been put in my place, and pushed back on this issue. I know that we still have terrible problems in many places.
